Write-up: Information has been received from a physician concerning a female (age not reported) who on an unspecified date, the patient was vaccinated with second dose of Gardasil (lot # not reported) SQ. Subsequently, the patient experienced an unspecified adverse event after the second dose of Gardasil was given. The patient sought medical attention and was hospitalized. The reporting physician did not administer the vaccine and was requesting follow-up from a medical team member. No further information was available at the time of reporting. Additional information has been requested. 4/26/07 CDC spoke with a nurse at the reporters office (the reporter for 277262). "While rounding in the hospital he was asked for advice about a patient (not his patient) who received her second HPV vaccine SQ instead of IM. They wanted to know if they should repeat the dose or not. He contacted Merck who responded with a letter saying they had not looked at this in the trials, etc. The patient did not have any problems.....the vaccine was administered incorrectly. " 4/27/07 Per email from CDC, "the report says the patient was hospitalized. According to your note, the pt. was NOT hospitalized. Correct? If so, we will have this corrected in VAERS." 4/27/07 Per email from CDC, "according to the nurse the patient was NOT hospitalized" 4/27/07 Per email from CDC, "Please change this in the VAERS database." Database change completed.
